About the distillery

Bruichladdich Distillery is a distillery on the Rhinns of the isle of Islay in Scotland. The distillery produces mainly single malt Scotch whisky, but has also offered artisanal gin. It is owned by Rémy Cointreau after being owned by Mark Reyneir. 

One interpretation of the Gaelic word Bruichladdich is "stony shore bank", referring to a post-glacial raised beach, though an alternative, perhaps more pertinent translation may be "rocky lee shore".

Pronunciation : "brook-laddie"

Other Information

This Bruichladdich 1986 vintage has matured over two decades in sherry casks in a traditional, earthen floor warehouse on the very edge of the Atlantic Ocean.

In this wonderful location, with its extremes of climate, the spirit is drawn deep into the oak staves extracting all the flavours, colours and warmth of the wines, producing something truly special from Islay's Western seaboard.

Bottled at cask strength in 2006, this is bottle number 1253 out of 2840.
